German Puffed Apple Pancake

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Polly W

I have been making this for years. It is easy and so good ! The only problem I have is that now when my family comes home I have to use 2 cast iron pans and with more Grandchildren arriving, I will soon be doing three !! This recipe will be used for many years to come.

Simple and easy to do and yummy to eat. I served mine with cream and maple syrup !! Great way to use apples and I am sure would be good with pears too !
